Who Is An Uncustomary Babe?

An Uncustomary Babe is someone who:

  • Knows they have something uncustomary and unique inside of them
  • Wants to share that uniqueness with the world
  • Is having at least a little difficulty with doing that due to limiting beliefs
  • Believes there is more for their life than they have seen so far
  • Understands self-love and evolution isn’t overnight or ‘easy’
  • Is ready to begin or continue their evolution and value that process

If you’ve ever struggled with:

  • Self-esteem
  • Self-worth
  • Body image
  • Imposter syndrome
  • Mental health
  • Optimism

If you meet the above criteria and want an archive of hundreds of resources, plus 5 new resources every week based on a theme every month (May + June's theme is Abundance + Scarcity!), then this group is for you!

Rave Reviews

"I can’t sing Uncustomary’s praises enough! I stumbled across her website while looking for tools to boost my self-care (It and my self-esteem had taken a nosedive) Flash forward two and a half years, I’m catching up with a close friend over dinner and she paused mid conversation to make an observation. 'You really look good...You look happy, and I think it’s because you’ve become more genuine to your true self.' She was right, and I credit a large part of that growth and overall happiness to Uncustomary. Mary knows her stuff. Period. Let me add that I am a mental health counselor -- so, I do not make that statement lightly. Uncustomary is the perfect balance of fun, education, and support. And, if there isn’t already an Uncustomary article or tool for what you’re dealing with, Mary can create one. She is such a real, kind, personable being! I am now an Awesome Tier member and loving every bit of it. It’s one of the best, and most reasonable investments I have made for myself since joining Uncustomary two and a half years ago! I’m excited to see where she goes next." - Jenn

"The Uncustomary Babes Membership Group is one of the most supportive, colorful, and joyous places I know! Maybe it's because Mary is always surpassing Herself with so many bright, shiny ways to love yourself and share your best with the world. There are journaling prompts, worksheets, playlists, endless ways to practice self-love and gratitude with a joyful attitude, all kinds of ideas for exploring and expanding the world around you and so much more! I love how much more colorful and kind my life has become since I joined! Being an Uncustomary Babe is awesome and it's truly the best bang-for-your-buck you will ever find! Thank You Mary for everything ~ You've made some dark times lighter and the bright times even brighter!" - Ella

"Uncustomary has been a life changer for me. I'm not a naturally positive person. A few years ago I was so miserable, isolated, and down on myself that I decided to make a change. That's when I found Mary. She has helped me to see the positive sides of life and myself. I've literally changed my entire life within three years using the joy and support that I've received from Mary and the Uncustomary Babes." - Kitty

"I always forget about Mary's monthly fun packages until I see them on my doorstep. And seeing them makes me feel like a little kid at Christmas! I go inside and do all my "after work" chores before I open them up. I like to wait as long as I can. And when I do finally open up the package, the eclectic, colorful, fun and purposeful items never fail to make me smile. I work hard and have life issues like everyone does, so these packages are my gift to myself and serve as a reminder for me to smile, have fun and be happy." - Barbara

"The Uncustomary Babes group, created, adored, and run by the one and only Uncustomary Mary England, is an exuberance of light, love, and creativity, with a refreshing dose of reality and practicality. Mary gives us a literal rainbow of thoughts, ideas, courses, and strategies to bring more positivity, color, lightness, and self-understanding into our lives. Mary is genuinely interested in our needs, and the group itself reflects that same genuine interest. Being a part of this group has been a delight and I am so looking forward to following where Uncustomary leads us!" - Julia

"Thank you so much - you don't know the amount of light and love your packages bring to my life. The latest one arrived on my birthday and honestly made my day!" - Shirazeh

"I am so unbelievably grateful that I came across Uncustomary. Her Uncustomary Babes Facebook group is the brightest point of my day. It is full of support and love and so much color! Mary is so honest while still being insanely optimistic and genuine. It is so awesome to find a woman who truly embraces her uniqueness while supporting other women in their own unique journeys. I think the most valuable thing that Uncustomary has given me, though, is a sense of community. Mary has a way of helping you realize you are truly never alone in whatever you’re facing in life. She is a sparkly human rainbow in an often otherwise gray world. I’m forever thankful I found her!" - Snow

"If you’re on the fence, hop on down. The Awesome Tier package is so worth it. I’d temporarily forgotten about it and it showed up at my door in the midst of a depression flare-up. It gave me my first smile of the week. I even brought it (along with Mary’s book) into therapy with me to show my therapist and he loved it. It’s definitely worth the money. Give it a try." - Michelle 

“I'm a new Uncustomary Babe but already I can see how it will help me in the long run. When I've been down, it seems that Mary's contagious beautiful attitude toward life finds me where I am. Not only is the Facebook group is filled with marvelous people from all walks of life, there are opportunities for growth, reminders to get gentle with yourself, and tips on how to be amazing. It's such a place of love and kindness you won't regret being a part of." - Lisa 

“The Uncustomary Babes group feels like home to me. I always get there when I want a pick me up, to get an opinion on anything, or celebrate a recent win. Mary prompts the group several times a week for things like our gratefulness list to what we want to accomplish, and genuinely does what she can to help! Along with the constant resources Mary provides, the tarot pulls, and support of everyone in the group, I am in for the long haul!" - Maura

“The Uncustomary Babes group is such a bright spot on the internet! From fun photos to self-care and gratitude practices, there's always something to look forward to when everything else on Facebook is a downer. Mary's got great quotes, advice, tips and tricks for whatever you can dream up. She and the other members are so helpful and encouraging. It's a total shame that more people don't know about the group yet!” - Erika

"I’ve been signed up for 6 or 7 months now, and the surprise goodie package that comes each month is so perfect. Every month I’m astounded and delighted by the stuff she finds; so many of the cute and fun things are self-affirming and body positive, and many leave me wondering where the heck she found them because they’re so unique.  

Honestly, I was hesitant to sign up at first because money was too tight for me to just add another subscription. I actually “temporarily” dropped a different subscription so I could make it work financially, and oh holy guacamole has this become one of the best parts of each month. Am I gushing? Yep. Is it warranted? Abso-freakin-lutely." - Ashleigh M.

“I started following Uncustomary on Instagram. I can't tell you how much Mary's beautiful pictures inspire me everytime that I see them! I fell in love with the colorful pictures that made me smile. Her dedication to body positivity and living in color is infectious! I signed up for the Uncustomary Babes Membership and it's like receiving a party in your mailbox each month! Being part of the Uncustomary Babes Membership makes you feel like you have a cheerleader to cheer you on towards your goals every single day! I encourage everyone to become a part of the fun!!!" - Melissa

More praise!

"I have been following Mary on Instagram for some time. I love her positive messages, colorful pictures, and general happy outlook on life. It always put a smile on my face. Within the last year or so I've been dealing with a lot of life changes. I was trying to dig myself out of a rut. I decided to join the Uncustomary Babe group and see if it could help me with my goals, and it definitely did.

While I don't use all the tools available, and there are a lot! I get so much out of the group, and enjoy working at my own pace to get back to myself. The group always has something new to talk about or try and its a great place to go to get a little pick me up!" - Deidre

"...For me, the Uncustomary Babes group serves as a great reminder to stop and take a breath. To think not just about what needs to be done, but to take stock of the good things, however small, that happen to me in my day-to-day life; to feel grateful and happy for the little things that so often get overshadowed by life’s bigger worries.  

The Uncustomary Babes group has great resources, and gives me the opportunity to set personal goals and practice gratitude in the midst of hectic work weeks. Posts reminding me to take care of myself and the world around me are invaluable, and often a great way to slow down when things seem to be going too fast.  

The group has been a great source of advice and comfort in troubled times, and a place to share the great things as well. The Uncustomary Babes are a great community of smart, compassionate humans, and I’m grateful to be part of this friendly, supportive community." - Leigh

“For instant joy in your letterbox Mary’s mail is the best! Rather than just getting bills and junk mail or even worse nothing at all, these packages will cheer you up no end. One of my packages contained amongst many cool and exciting things a “High Five” plastic banner and when I see it on my desk at work it makes me smile every time! If you or your letterbox needs a cheer and a pick-me-up then this subscription is the one for you, a postal fanfare every time! From one very satisfied customer on the other side of the pond." - Scott T. (Positively Postal)

I feel so excited when I see the envelope at my door. I love all the small things that are so fun! I feel like there’s a really good mix of educational materials and self-care materials, as well as some fun small things that can really brighten up your day. Mary does an excellent job of curating the boxes for multiple tastes. - Katharina

“The monthly surprise package was packed with so many goodies! It really made my day to receive a package like that, where it just seems to keep going and going with surprises. What I love the most is that even though that was a few months ago, there are certain items that I am still thinking about using artfully, so the fun just keeps on giving!" - Olivia D. 

“I love being a member of such a positive, uplifting group! If you join as either a basic member or an awesome plan member, you get access to tons of free content like positive quotes to share online and even fun activities like scavenger hunts. With a basic account, you get access to the Facebook group and fun mail every month and with an awesome plan account, you get the above and a super fun package every month! Mary even has numerous informative classes on various topics for reasonable fees. Mary's group has definitely helped me to feel better about myself!” - April

“Everyone loves getting mail, but this mail is the unicorn of the mail world! I can’t even put into words how uplifted and special I felt when I opened the package from Mary. Day instantly made, as well as several of my friends because of course I shared the fun! If you’re even considering ordering your own, just do your future self a favor and DO IT!” - Kels

“Remember when I was in a pit of despair for several days and nothing at all helped to lift it, then I got a surprise package and it was basically a snail-mailed antidepressant? It’s hard to be sad when you’re wearing giant glasses, applying temporary tattoos and trying to decide whether or not it’s a good idea to eat exciting candy at 1am. This month’s package is the best one yet, and that’s a pretty serious endorsement. You should probably sign up.” - Janice J. 

"My favorite part of getting the Merriment Packages is divvying up the items to send along to friends and family (this is my 7 year old being SUPER PSYCHED by the book of stickers). Thank you for your generosity, Uncustomary!" - Julia

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are only women allowed in the group?  

A: Of course not! The Uncustomary Universe is extremely inclusive and we've had people of all genders since its genesis. "Babes" is basically my term for "y'all". It's not gender-specific. I call everyone babe, and believe you're a TOTAL babe! (Anyone and everyone needs self-love, babe!)

Q: Are the e-courses on gratitude, mindfulness, self-care, self-esteem, and magic still free?

A: Yes!

Q: Can I cancel my plan at any time?

A: Yes. You can cancel at any time.

Q: How do I cancel my Plan?

A: You go into your PayPal account, go to Tools >> All Tools >> Recurring Payments, then select the plan and hit cancel (YOU have to do this, not me!) You can also just Google "how to cancel recurring PayPal payments".

Q: Did The All Star Plan used to be called the Basic Plan?

A: Yes

Q: Did the All Star Plan used to be a one time fee?

A: Yes. Postage/snail mail costs are drastically increasing per month, so in order to ensure I'm getting that Happy Mail out to you every month, I need to cover those costs!

Q: Did the All Star Plan used to cost $8?

A: Yes. It went up in price on November 1st, 2020 after a lot of notice on my blog, newsletter, and social media.

Q: If I cancel my All Star Plan, will I lose access to the Facebook Support Group?

A: Unfortunately, yes.

Q: If I don't use Facebook, can I still access the resources?  

A: Yes. You get access to a Teachable Hub with your membership. You miss out on a lot of social/support elements, but all worksheets, videos, etc. are downloadable in that platform.

Q: When do I need to sign up by to get the Merriment Plan package for that month?

A: As long as you sign up by midnight PST on the 10th of every month, you will be registered for that current month. Anything after that is automatically enrolled for the following month.

Q: If I sign up for either of the plans, do I need to wait till the 10th to get access to the online resources?

A: No. The 10th is just the cut off for package sign-ups for the Merriment Plans for that month. Digital resources are instant.

Q: When do the monthly Merriment Plan packages ship out?

A: I have to wait until after the 10th to see how many people sign up, then as soon as possible I go shopping for unique gifts (everything changes each month!), write notes, package them, then go to the post office. Short answer? After the 22nd of the month, so expect your package towards the end of every month. Allow extra time if you're not in the U.S. 

Q: Can I buy just one month of the Merriment Plan?

A: Yes you can, but it's a couple bucks more. It's listed as "One Month Trial".

Q: Does the Happy Mail in the All Star Plan mean I get an Merriment Package?

A: NO! Happy Mail is usually in the form of a postcard or envelope. They are tiered memberships for a reason. I could not possibly send you a giant package WITH shipping with $18 (or less) a month! This is a very intense assumption. If you want packages, you MUST SIGN UP for the Merriment Tier!

Q: Can I buy either of the plans for someone else as a gift?

A: Yes! Just let me know who the gift is for at check out.

Q: What kind of gifts can I expect with the Merriment Plan packages?

A: They're completely a surprise and will change every month, but I can promise you they're always something I'd be happy to receive. They'll be colorful for sure, silly, and self-care based. Functional, but fun. Party supplies, office supplies, craft supplies, stationery/ephemera, trinkets, toys, who knows?! On this page you can see pictures of examples of past packages.

Q: Are these plans only available to people in the United States?

A: Unfortunately the Merriment Plan Package is limited to US residents right now due to the Postal Service situation and postal costs.

Q: Is shipping included in the $60 listing price?

A: No, for the Merriment Plan, you'll see it added on at check out.

Q: Did the 'Merriment Plan' used to be called the 'Awesome Plan'?

A: Yes!
